    2K was developing Duke Begins

    Court filing reveals 2K Games was developing 'Duke Begins'
    by Griffin McElroy { Jun 22nd 2009 at 11:15AM }

    Did you seriously think he'd just roll over and die? He's Duke Nukem, guys. We're pretty sure he can't be killed by conventional weapons (such as bankruptcy).

    This news came in response to last month's Take-Two court filing against Duke Nukem Forever developer Apogee Software, which attempted to recoup loans the publisher had distributed to Apogee -- loans which would have ostensibly been repaid by DNF royalties. Apogee's attorneys responded Friday with a shocking revelation -- in exchange for their support, Apogee gave Take-Two the rights to simultaneously develop another Duke Nukem game. Take-Two tasked 2K Games with said development under the working title Duke Begins.

    Apogee's defense states that 2K "halted or otherwise canceled all development work by the third-party game developer on the Duke Begins game in April 2009," an action Apogee sees as Take-Two's attempt at, "pressuring Apogee to sell the Duke Nukem franchise rights to Take-Two for less than their true value." With the cat officially out of the bag, we expect to hear more about the Duke's origin story (like, if it's still being developed) in the near future.

      • We all are.

        If this persists we may have to return to Yahoo.

        See the various news today? Pacther upped his PT's on ATVI to $16 from $13.75, THQ to $9 from $5.50, and Ubi to E21 from E16.50. It almost goes without saying that ATVI's insider selling wasn't mentioned.

        Also it seems that Emelianenko, Sylvia and Couture and linked to the EA MMA game. That would be like Pro Evo soccer having only a few licenses compared to FIFA. If the game is better it can still compete although it's an uphill battle. Since the UFC game is so damn good to begin with (I'm still playing it, on my third career run now), it'll be a very steep hill.
